Wide receiver Aaron Dobson was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens, but traveled with the team to Baltimore on Saturday and appears set to play.

The same can’t be said of tackle Nate Solder and wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins. Both players were downgraded to out and remained in New England after the rest of team headed to the game. They join wide receiver Josh Boyce as Pats who will miss the game because of injury.

Thompkins will be missing his third straight game because of a hip injury. He was a productive target for Tom Brady in the red zone before tight end Rob Gronkowski began playing this season and his absence leaves the Pats with more to figure out offensively with Gronkowski again out of the lineup.

Solder failed to get final clearance after last week’s concussion and will miss a game for the first time in his NFL career. It’s the fourth concussion in three seasons for Solder and the second in two weeks. Logan Mankins kicked over to left tackle from left guard last weekend when Solder was injured, but the team could also turn to backup tackle Will Svitek.
